1. There is a charge of $55 for telemedicine consultations, just as there is for in-house examinations and consultations. If you would like to utilize this option, the doctor will answer questions and/or assess the patient, make recommendations/prescribe medications, and then you will be charged at the end of the visit. Not all problems can be addressed virtually so if the doctor believes that an in-house visit is necessary, the amount of the telemedicine consultation ($55) will be applied towards the physical exam portion of the in-house visit (credit must be used for the same problem and within 2 weeks of online consultation).
Here are some examples of problems, but not limited to, that can be seen over telemedicine – Surgical rechecks, Skin rechecks, Lameness, Diarrhea and Vomiting, Medical Progress, Minor injuries: cuts, scrapes, bites, etc.
2. The doctors will be providing this service during our regular business hours. Outside of business hours, please check the app and see if the doctor is “online”. If the doctors are not online, they will respond once they become available.
4. Please use our website or call our office for all refill requests or regular questions so that we can address these in our normal manner. Please allow 24-48 hours for all refill requests.
5. Due to the NC Veterinary Practice Act set forth by the NC Veterinary Medical Board, this service is limited to current clients only. In order to use this service, your pet must have been seen within the last 12 months (i.e. have a “valid veterinarian-client-patient relationship”). Legally, we cannot make any allowances or exceptions.
